If you have followed Jeep for more than a few years the 2022 Wrangler Overlook concept might ring a little familiar. Back in 2015 the Africa Concept based on the last generation Wrangler JK made its bid at the annual Easter Safari.
Fast forward to today, the Overlook Concept takes the Wrangler Sahara and adds 12-inches behind the rear axle to make it into a three-row luxury off-roader. Looking very much like it could take you on an African safari, the roof is raised 5-inches in the rear with lots of view windows to add some adventure to it all.
The rear shell itself is for the most part fixed but a custom removable one-piece Freedom Top sits over the front row driver and passenger and has a flip-up glass sunroof. When you open the rear gate you find a lot less space than expected as the third row seat is there.
Surprisingly though the cabin area for the third row seems large enough to be comfortable for most adults and the headroom is certainly there.
Closed, you can see the huge spare mounted with a tailgate reinforcement system and oversized spare tire modification kit. Also at the center of the wheels is a JPP CHMSL relocation kit. Custom-made rear bumper extensions reach about 12 inches around each quarter panel to the wheel flares.
While the Sahara is already a pretty luxuriously trimmed out Wrangler, this interior is trimmed with black Katzkin leather seats and a notably well done black leather-wrapped dash. Both seats and dash are accented with Sahara Bronze stitching to match the exterior.
Center panels in the seats use Raven Black suede in a hexed stitch pattern. Front seats have a Jeep grille logo embroidered in the seat backs. Helping protect the sill areas under all four doors are black sill guards featuring the vehicle’s logo.
The Overlook has a mean stance aided by a Jeep Performance Parts 2-inch lift kit along with FOX shocks. Wheels are 20-inch Black Rhino York with some meaty 37-inch BFGoodrich KM3tires. Other factory accessories include tubular side steps.
Up front is a new design theme for a stamped steel front bumper narrower than the stock and has LED fog lights and an integrated winch. Up top are a set of JPP 5-inch off-road LED lights.
